Route to Roots
This exhibition looks at the Route to Roots project exploring the role, use and significance of masquerade arts as one of the mediums through which creative knowledge networks can be fostered across key points in the African diaspora: Africa, the Caribbean and the UK.
The project brought together creative artists working in diverse art forms for a 7-day residency culminating in a public performance installation at the Butetown Carnival and the Hub Festival in Cardiff.
This project is rooted in research on Carnival as a performance of re-presentation and aimed to engage ways in which heritage and stories of historical, philosophical, spiritual significance from the African diasporic experience can be shared and then re-presented through costume, music, and dance in a public space.
